Colheita Port is basically a single vintage-dated Tawny Port. The word means "harvest" and is made from the grapes of a single year’s harvest.
Colheita ports are aged in small casks for many years and are bottled in their seventh or eighth year in cask although most are aged much longer, some even to a hundred years.


tawny Tawny Ports are of two distinct types. The younger is usually called a "Fine Tawny". The other is called Aged Tawny. These aged ports mature for longer periods in oak casks, mainly for 10, 20, 30 and 40 years. They are rich and mellow tawny ports whose delicious nuttiness and aromas of butterscotch and fine oak wood which intensifies the longer they mature in the casks.
